Every year over 500 people add immense value to The Connection’s services by volunteering their time. We currently have the following vacancies:
Language Volunteers and Client Advocates – CSTM Service Delivery – Bulgarian and Hungarian
The Connection at St Martins works with a wide range of people that find themselves homeless on the streets of Westminster. Some of these people do not have English as their first language and it is at times difficult for our front line staff to communicate with them to be able to assess their needs and support them. Additionally, it is often difficult for these clients to advocate for themselves with other services. Therefore, we are looking for volunteers with language skills who are able to support some of the most vulnerable homeless people to communicate with us as well as with other services that we are able to link them with. We are currently looking for Bulgarian and Hungarian speakers to join us as language volunteers.
For more information about these opportunities please call Lance Kuhn – Volunteer Manager on 020 7925 7893 or email email@example.com
Friends of The Connection
The Friends of the Connection – a sister charity, which raises money for the Connection’s work, is looking for volunteers to help with communications, fund-raising and membership recruitment. These tasks would involve working closely with the Friends’ Committee and giving a few hours a month. If you are interested please email Nigel Thorpe on firstname.lastname@example.org
All volunteers at The Connection at St Martin’s will have access to training and support and if you are unwaged your travel expenses will be paid.
*Please note, we require a six month commitment for most of our volunteering positions.
